Monday Gu(e)st: S II: 8. Man’s Effort in Relationship–Kshitija

Today’s post is a different one. We talk about women empowerment, we talk of the role a woman plays in a relationship and so on. But, we never talk of man or boy or guy. Being a boy myself I also never talk of this. And this point catch my eyes and make the post an interesting and shareable one. Written by a girl thinking of the role of a man play in the daily life of a woman. This week guest blogger is a new blogger-friend name Kshitija.


 

Man’s Effort in Relationship–Kshitija

 

We always praise a lady/women/girl. Each year we celebrate women’s day, mother’s day, daughter’s day. Either she is working women or a homemaker she is always appreciated by people.

“Oh! It’s not an easy task to handle a kid, husband, in-laws everything”,

“Wow!!  You are really a superwoman, you manage your house, family members and then your work. ” although if she had a house maid for all her daily chores but she is always been appreciated.

These are some normal comments which we always hear. 

But we never think from men’s’ side. If he is married then he might be working for 8-9 hours daily, spending quality time with family, fulfilling their needs, desire. I am so grateful to have such people in my life. My Father. I have seen him working so hard in my young age and he never complain about not getting proper sleep or for our outing demands and one man in my life is my lifetime companion(long distance relationship). He works from morning  9 to 6. But never complains that he is tired from work, want a sleep, or upset from his colleagues. No, never he did this and I am always grateful for his sweet gesture, he is always ready to pamper me, listen to me. 

Sometimes being a girl and always been pampered by everyone and appreciated on social media, the newspaper everywhere when I have seen importance is given to women from a very early age. So it always became a mindset that women work most and have to handle everything. But if we magnify the life of a man then we will realize how difficult it is for men to manage each and every relation and then also they never get appreciated or never they demand anything in return. 

This picture perfectly defines what I am unable to express.

Monday Gu(e)st: S II: 7. Oh My God, Just Look at Her–The Flittering Soul

The Monday is here so the blue. Before welcoming the guest to-eve, I want to promote a thing. From this month I’ve partnered with Sheetal Bharadwaj in co-hosting her Fortnight Friday Fables. This fortnight fable we both going to host alternatively. So, this week it is me. Check the rules and my challenge and participate in it if you can.

So, here’s go self-bantering. Now welcome the guest of honor. She writes daily life in the wittiest way most of the times and also stories in the same manner. You’ll laugh (or love) first then will think over her writing. She weaves simple words so beautifully that praise sometimes run short. Like a few days back, in one of her post, she was hungry very much and was out to shopping with her Ma. So, she described the situation like this “… it was 5 pm and I started threatening my mom that I would eat her…” (Bread, Not Bucks–06/21/2017)

Please welcome The Flittering Soul


Oh My God, Just Look at Her–The Flittering Soul

As I mentioned in my post, She is a Revelation, my friends & I spent most of our teenage days perfecting the art of ogling guys. Comments like “Look at his hair!“,”Wearing black made him look tons cooler!” would quite often be followed by, “Look away, look away, he has seen us.”

However, this ship took a drastic change in course over the years. Now I’m so much more interested in observing the ladies (Answer to your question: No, I am not lesbian.) But honestly, it’s far more interesting. Many of my friends have agreed to this and will nod along as they read this. So would my seventeen-year-old cousin!

Comparing our flaws with theirs, ‘oooh’ing and ‘aaah’ing at their perfect face, skin, figure or even lack of it is a favorite past time for most. All of this is purely for fun. I am not judging or pointing out the ‘right’ size or figure. All that varies from one mind to another and we are made to look gorgeous at any size. Let’s all take a moment to thank heavens for apps like B612, Candy Camera and so on.

Envying their wardrobe and the panache with which they carry the attire can make us go wide-eyed, mouths hanging open. Hunting for similar clothes online, waiting for their delivery and our trials are an entirely different story in itself. Let’s take the mandatory selfie of the face & neck portion of the new attire rather than the full appearance, shall we? Post it with #ootd and we are done!

We certainly go gaga over any female with hair that’s straight out of the Head & Shoulders advertisement. We try swishing ours left to right too, but it makes people around swerve to avoid it. So we stop. We are better off with ponytails!

A bunch of girls sitting together, jobless, observing the female population is as bad as a bunch of guys, even though, we didn’t intend to stare and make the clothes fall off on its own, hoot or wolf whistle. Our eyes fall directly on areas which we don’t like in ourselves! Comparison charts, graphs, and analytical tables crop up in our heads almost immediately.

See, it’s so much more interesting to observe (ogle) and stalk women than men!

Guest Post #4: No Mas, Keep Calm & Carry On and Few More Poems (Cherry)

After a month break I am back with the Monday Guest Post. Today is Tuesday though, but, this week post just left me puzzled. Last 3 times it was an essay each week. This week I had to select poems from a beautiful and talented blogger friend of mine who goes by name Cherry and whose blog name is Rainbow

She is a dedicated Daily Prompt attemptor. Her poem I love to read because of the style, which I have already named Cherry-Style, she writes. Another factor is her depiction of daily life–her and around. So here’s 7 of her poems that I chose to reflect her personality as poetess. And I will request you all to visit her blog to get more surprise through her writings. Please pay a visit to her and I guaranteed, you’ll like her writings. 

Please pay a visit to her and I guaranteed, you’ll like her writings. And don’t forget to comment on this post. The poetess herself will reply to you. Continue reading
